* SidetrackedByTheAnalogy: The Richard vs. Wormwood pre-fight banter wanders off so far into a dancing metaphor that they agree to start over.

** When Galavant convinces Richard to just assassinate Kingsley Richard loudly announces it to the whole pub, and they both then walk the castle drunkenly singing about it. By the time they actually get to the bedroom there's an ambush in place.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: King Richard can come out on the spot with a BatmanGambit to kill Galavant, foresees the nubile princess will fall in love with the fallen knight and uses her parents as hostages to prevent that, while lampshading the cliché. [[spoiler: Even if Madalena's meddling eventually saves Galavant from hanging, Richard is also savvy enough to look under the hood just before the execution, saving the chef and finding out about Madalena's interference.]]

''Galavant'' is a musical-comedy series which first aired on {{Creator/ABC}} during the midseason break during winter 2014/2015 (bridging the gap between season halves of ''Series/OnceUponATime''). The series follows the exploits of the knight Galavant, who lost his true love to the evil King Richard. Despondent, Galavant is approached by Isabella, the princess of Valencia. Her kingdom has come under attack by Richard, and she wants Galavant to liberate it. Problem is, Galavant has spent the time since his ordeal [[DrowningMySorrows drinking]] and sleeping. Along the way are laughs, epic battles, and songs.

Surprisingly - despite the show's narrator himself thinking it unlikely - the show was picked up for a second season, which began airing January 3, 2016. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlZIeCjIL40 Season 2's opening number is available on YouTube]].

But alas, the show's luck ran out and it wasn't renewed for a third season. Creator/AlanMenken says that he isn't done with this project, however, and hopes to be able to find another home for it, even hinting at a possible run on Broadway.

''Galavant'' is a musical-comedy series which first aired on {{Creator/ABC}} Creator/{{ABC}} during the 2014/2015 midseason break during winter 2014/2015 (bridging break. (Bridging the gap between season halves of ''Series/OnceUponATime''). ''Series/OnceUponATime''.) The series follows the exploits of the [[FamedInStory famous]] knight Galavant, who lost his whose true love to Madalena was kidnapped by the evil King Richard. Despondent, Richard, and then, when Galavant attempted to rescue her, Madalena chose to marry Richard for the fame and fortune instead of returning to Galavant. About a year later, a despondent Galavant is approached by Isabella, the princess of Valencia. Her kingdom has come under attack by Richard, and she wants Galavant to liberate it. Problem is, There's just one problem; Galavant has spent the time since his ordeal last year or so doing nothing but [[DrowningMySorrows drinking]] and sleeping. becoming a sour and depressed shut-in, so he's not really up for playing the hero. So it falls to Isabella and Galavant's squire Sidney to try and inspire him to take up the quest to save Valencia and once again become the hero he was meant to be. Along the way are laughs, epic battles, and songs. ''Lots and lots'' of songs.

Surprisingly - despite mediocre ratings and the show's own narrator himself thinking it unlikely - the show was picked up for a second season, which began airing January 3, 2016. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlZIeCjIL40 Season 2's opening The second season resolved many of the plot threads that had been LeftHanging at the end of the first, as well as a number is available on YouTube]].

of new conflicts that arose during the course of the season. That said it still ended with something of a SequelHook, as well as some more subtle hints at potential plot/character arcs that would be present in a third season.

But alas, the show's luck ran out and it wasn't renewed for a third season. Creator/AlanMenken says that he isn't done with this the project, however, and hopes to be able to find another home for it, even hinting at a possible run on Broadway.

* FairForItsDay: A satirical InUniverse case. In the second season, Galavant and Richard find that while Richard has been away from his home kingdom the people have reinvented it as a democracy, demolishing Richard's castle to build a new, better village and distributing his wealth among the people to better their lives. Of course, it's hardly what could be called a fair democracy, since tons of people get excluded from voting, (women, gays, the poor, lepers, people of color, redheads, anyone accused of being a witch, etc.) but Galavant winkingly points how it's still very progressive for the Middle Ages. It's both a barb towards the tendency to whitewash the past with this trope (particularly, the democracy practiced by the American Founding Fathers) and how shades of the same practices are still reflected in more enlightened times.

* OverwhelmingException: The proto-democracy that gets started in Richard's kingdom has a ''long'' list of people not allowed to vote. By the end of the song the guy singing it is cheerfully lampshading the fact that only people very much like him are allowed a voice in the new system.

* LoveMartyr: He gets over it eventually, but it takes a ''lot'' of abuse from Madalena for Galavant to give up on her.

* JerkAssHasAPoint: Madalena tells Galavant to his face that [[TheStoic shutting away your feelings in order to be a hero,]] like his father taught him, is stupid and doesn't do him any good. He realises that she's right and even wonders for a moment if there might be some good in her after all... only for her to turn around and prove that no, she's still fundamentally a JerkAss.
